Western Massachusetts-based hardcore band Revenge will be releasing their new album this Friday, Septmber 5th, but you can stream the whole thing now courtesy of TheB9 below. 12 songs of discontented fury; 30 minutes filled with snarls and riffs. Following their 2013 release Hymns of Annihilation, this new album is undeniably a ripper and showcases Revenge’s more developed take on hardcore.
The album, which has been in the works for the band for three years, is set for release on Septmber 5th via Rat Trax Records. The Heavens Are Empty was recorded at Dead Air Studios, with Will Killingsworth, who has worked with bands such as Incendiary, Hoax and Mental in the past.
Revenge has existed as a band since 2008, undertaking a total of six releases and several U.S. and European tours.
The album features two tasteful guest spots by collective members of Vigilante, Onslaught, Apes of Wrath and Death Threat. “Prayers Unanswered” features guest vocals by Jeff Butcher, member of both Vigilante and Onslaught. Jamie Riddle, a longstanding member of both Death Threat and Apes of Wrath, makes a guest appearance on “Until You No Longer Breathe”.
Stream The Heavens Are Empty in full below or visit the Rat Trax Records Bandcamp, where the digital download of the full-length album is up for pre-order for $5. Pre-orders of the full-length on CD are available on the Rat Trax Records Bigcartel. A vinyl release of the record is in the works for later this year.
Revenge is playing a record release show on September 14th at The Waterfront in Holyoke, MA with Scurvy, Villain, Warrior Prince, Machines of Hate and Absolute Suffering.
